I had a very good king prawn dish and I would rate it very good but my partner wasn't as pleased with his dish. I'd go again though.

The Chef's Special Chicken Breast, stuffed with sun dried figs, with white wine and marjoram sauce, served with Mediterranean vegetables is gorgeous. Nice staff and properly good food. Not cheap, but reasonable considering how good the food is. Highly recommended.

Situated in an old town house in St Julian’s, Peperoncino has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.Inside is decorated in a traditional manner with limestone walls and elegant décor, while the outside terrace area offers fantastic views over Balluta Bay.The food is a blend of Maltese, Sicilian and Italian with other international flavours merged, so combinations are both varied and interesting.
